There are many reasons to be excited about attending university in Adelaide. With the city, vineyards and sea all within close reach, you can experience the best Australia has to offer at your doorstep.
It’s no surprise so many students choose to enrol at the University of Adelaide. But don’t be fooled by its laidback lifestyle – there are also heaps of fun things to do. Finding accommodation to complement your uni experience is the first step.
How to Choose the Right University of Adelaide Accommodation
Your accommodation sets the tone for your life at uni. You may prefer to find somewhere where you have your own space, or maybe you’d like to surround yourself with plenty of opportunities to socialise. Where you end up depends on your preferences and budget.
Factors to Consider
• Location – Close proximity to your university will ensure an easy commute.
• Social life – Socialising is a big part of student life, so if that’s important to you, your housing choice should reflect this.
• Budget – Adelaide is one of Australia’s most affordable cities, making rent cheaper than it would be in other places.
These are the main pros and cons with Adelaide uni student accommodation options:
Pros and Cons of Share Housing
• Pros – Shared costs, shared cleaning, more chances to socialise
• Cons – Patience will be tested, less privacy
Pros and Cons of On-Campus Accommodation
• Pros – Social and educational opportunities, no commute to classes, utilities included with rent

Pros and Cons of Homestay
